Saturday was the last day of work for Clark, my candy making assistant from China. He was a really hard worker, and a really good guy. SO, here’s to Clark, one hard working son-of-a-gun candymaker!
Today is the beginning of a very festive weekend on Mackinac Island, as today starts the Mackinac Island Fudge Festival! There are a lot of fun events going on, but the real event will be what you’ll find inside the fudge shops! Here are a couple of pictures from around May’s Famous Fudge shop from this summer:
In an attempt to catch up to my brother’s artwork, I’ve been working on my penmanship in the fudge:
And after a long day of fudge making, all I have left to do now is cut the fudge and clean the marble slabs.
I haven’t posted in awhile, and there’s a very good reason for that…
Did you know that we make everything we sell at May’s Candy Shops? It’s incredibly delicious… and also incredibly time consuming. But now that I’ve gotten a handle on the physical labor of candy making, it is also that time of year when weddings consume the other part of my day.
I hate to say it, but I will have to go offline for the next couple of weeks. It happens every year – and I deny the fact that it happens every year – but I unfortunately am too busy to continue making regular blog posts, at least not until the season slows down a bit.
Don’t worry though… I’m still going to be posting your Postcards to Mackinac when they come in. In fact, I just got one from Canada which I was pretty excited about! My postcards are crossing borders (and PS to you, check your mail soon for some fudge)! Anyway, the postcards will continue to go up, just my personal blogposts will be on hiatus.
Take care everyone… keep checking for postcards… we’ll see you in a couple weeks…
